    Seriously? My saying, "Now you are just being a bad joke," is an insult to you after you mention you not being able to smoke cigs in a bar is somehow a rational comparison to what happened today? No . . . I would say you insulted the intelligence of anyone who read your words here today. You are one of the most disrespectfully selfish people I have ever witnessed on the Internets.

    While I do not officially ignore people . . . I do ignore people out of choice . . . you hit that list.

    Tell us, when would be the most convenient time for you to talk about gun control? Shall we set up an appointment?
    How about after the bodies of DEAD CHILDREN go cold, for the love of Christ! These families can't even begin processing the loss of life and people are raging over an issue that is already beat into the goddamn ground. If I were one of those parents I'd tell every zealot from both sides to shut up for a minute. How disrespectful.

    On the grounds that guns have no other function than to kill. It should be assumed that if someone wants a gun they will use it for its intended purpose.

    Say what you want, but none of those things are as quick and effective as a gun.

    Sounds like you are in on the conspiracy.

    Anyone else notice the increase in these public shootings over the last year, and since 2009?????

    Thank you for saying something that I couldn't have said without getting threadbanned.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    That is patently false. Guns have numerous other purposes, but primarily for defense.
    They are also used for target shooting and hunting. Owning a gun teaches personal
    responsibility which I do understand is not a "nanny state" requirement but some of us
    still think its a good thing.

    So... you have no rational reason for denying this man a gun.
    Thank you.

    We COULD let the blood dry at least before the gun ban conversations start. But...also today...

    "BEIJING — A knife-wielding man injured 22 children and one adult outside a primary school in central China as students were arriving for classes Friday, police said, the latest in a series of periodic rampage attacks at Chinese schools and kindergartens.

    The attack in the Henan province village of Chengping happened shortly before 8 a.m., said a police officer from Guangshan county, where the village is located.

    No motive was given for the stabbings, which echo a string of similar assaults against schoolchildren in 2010 that killed nearly 20 and wounded more than 50. The most recent such attack took place in August, when a knife-wielding man broke into a middle school in the southern city of Nanchang and stabbed two students before fleeing."
